Get in line.

Weeks after being sued for millions by the mother of his 18-year-old son, actor Nicholas Cage is being served with new papers by a real estate company that accuses him of owing more than $5 million in loans, People reports.

The company, Red Curb Investments, also claims in court papers that Cage, his ex-accountant and a mortgage broker did not reveal the financially troubled star's $6.3 million tax debt.

Red Curb seeks at least $36.7 million in total to recover the original loans, interest, damages, lawyer fees and other charges.

Cage’s lawyer, Marty Singer, disputes the suit.

"Any claims that Nic Cage engaged in fraud or wrongful conduct is absurd and ridiculous," he told People.

Cage, who owes $6.3 million to the IRS and has defaulted on a $2 million bank loan, blames his accountant for his money woes and is fighting him in court. Cage has reportedly begun to make up the difference by selling homes, cars and yachts.

The accountant, Samuel Levin has countersued, accusing the actor of “compulsive, self-destructive spending.”

In December, Christina Fulton, the mother of Cage’s son Weston, filed suit for $13 million.

Fulton, 42, has claimed in court records that Cage broke a contract after promising her a L.A. home to raise their son in then telling to scram in September. She also blames Cage for her own tax problems and for her credit card debt.

“We expect this [Fulton's] lawsuit to be promptly thrown out," Cage's lawyer told People.
